Here is our tree. Our real tree that L and M went and picked yesterday. Its had to have a little pruning done to it as its was a bit wonky to start with but its perfect.
I love how the top 3 sticks/stems/bits all curl up. They remind me of antlers. Sadly the picture doesn't show up our lovely little twinkly lights.
I ended up decorating it myself as M announced it was boring! As if! And the boys wanted to bicker over cars.
But I enjoyed myself with a bit of Dean Martin playing in the background. Lovely.

A bit of a funny looking snowman I'll admit but he's a bigun! I had to do his head all on my own because by that point M had walked off announcing it was too cold and middle child was screaming his head off and showing me his wet gloved hands as if to say "oh my god they are going to fall off".
So I quickly finished him off and now we're sat in our nice cosy room with duvets and tv. Fab.
So today, according to my blogger dashboard, I am now on my 100th post! Pretty good going for me considering I don't normally stick at things for very long. But this whole blogging thing I find really enjoyable. The people I have chatted to, the blogs I visit, the swaps I've taken part in and organised, its all been great.
I'll stop babbling now. So 100 posts equals a giveaway. I'm not telling what you'll win because its a suprise but it will be good I do promise that. So lovely bloggers, leave me a comment, anything, something totally random if you wish, leave me a piece of strange knowledge or a fact and teach me something new.
Comments will close on Monday at midnight and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday. I would do it before but littlest boy turns one on Saturday and we're having a big family gathering here so as of midnight tonight I'll turn into this wild vicious monster frantically sorting the house out. Its all a bit Jekyll and Hyde. Not nice but at least I'll have a tidy house at the end of it.

I apologise for the dire photo but the box would not play and pose for me.
I also apologise for the creases in the fabric. That is due to M playing with it this morning and then the middle child sitting on it.
But aside from its non posing and creases, its come out really well. I have lined it with 4oz wadding, so its really soft. It holds it shape well and it would make a good little storage box for crafty bits. Maybe wool, thread or just keep your little bits and bobs in. I think it would be also good for a nappy/diaper holder. I think they're a bigger hit in the US than here in the UK though.
Time and sick child (yes thats M who has caught yet another sickness bug) permitting, I'm hopefully going to make another one today and take photos whilst I'm doing it, then I can do my very first tutorial! Look at me, getting big for my boots! (you watch, the next one will go horribly wrong)
Did anyone sign up for Soozs Happy CD swap? I have found out who my partners are today so I'm off for a blog nosey!
Have a good day folks.
